in this country has increased by just 2%. many economists believe because there aae not enough jobs, workers have to take less pay. seems to make sense. president obama, though, he believes that the federal government can change that situation. however, in five years, his theory has not produced results. nevertheless, the president remains undaunted. >> we need to set aside the belief that government cannot do anything about reducing inequality. it's true that government cannot prevent all of the downsides of the technological change and global competition that are out there right now, but we've also seen how government action time and again can make an enormous difference in increasing opportunity and bolstering ladders into the middle class. >> an enormous difference? i haven't seen it, have you? maybe he's talking about fdr's new deal or social security or something like that, but presently? big government and high taxation seem to be holding back the private sector and job creation. and the left seems to want it that way. yesterday, "the new york times" editorialized, "the emphasis on cutting
and talked about his wife's chances of running for president, joe biden, and his critique of obama care. >> is mrs. clinton running for president? >> i don't know. and i think, and she believes, that the country should spend at least another year working hard on the problems that we have. we have very serious challenges in american and responsibilities around the world. i think it's a big mistake this constant four-year complain. we need to deal with the business we have before us. >> what kind of president do you think vice president joe biden would make? >> if he runs and he's a nominee, i'll try to help him. i think the world of him. i think -- we've been friends. i first remember working with him when he was the chairman of the judiciary committee to the senate and i was a governor and he asked me to testify in a judicial hearing for him. and i had to file a testimony because i had to go to asia. but i've known him for years and years. and i have a very high opinion of him. i care a great deal about him and i think he's done a good job for the president and for the country. >> is it
striving hard-working, optimistic kid in america has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. >> currently the minimum wage is $7.25. adjusted for inflation. that's more than $3 less than the minimum wage back in 1968. president obama says he will support a senate bill to increase the minimum wage to $10.10. >>> if hillary clinton decides to run for president in 2016, her path to the democratic nomination may have just become a little clearer. the "boston globe" is recording elizabeth warren put an to end speculation she might pursue the white house in the foreseeable future. at a news conference, warren pledged to serve out her term. she added, i'm not running for president. i'm working as hard as i can to be the best possible senator that i can be and to fight for the things that i promised during my campaign to fight for. >>> rob ford, well, just been a little too long since we talked about him. so we're going to talk about it. new police documents reveal toronto's mayor may have offered suspected drug dealers $5,000 and a car to keep video of him smoking crack from becomi
to $15. fast food workers are among the lowest paid workers in the country. >> low wages are being addressed by president obama. in a speech wednesday, the president said he will dough vote the rest of his term to addressing income inequality. >> the idea that a child may never be able to climb out of positivity, that should offend all of us and compel to us action. we are a better country than this. let me repeat. the combined trends of increase in equality and decreasing equality pose a threat to the american dream and what we stand for around the world. >> wal-mart workers walked off the job on black friday demanding equality. >> hotel workers in seattle tack coma airport got their wages bumped up to $15 an hour from the current $7.25. last year, 200 fast food workers held a one day strike at more than 20 restaurants in new york. what are we expecting today. >> well, stephanie, it certainly remains to be seen, but this movement has picked up steam. this started about a year ago, small in new york with just a few workers walking out, but back here in august this summer, this part

in vienna this week to discuss the six-month nuclear agreement. president obama said he is committed to diplomacy as the best path for halting iran's nuclear program. >> we have to not constantly assume that it's not possible for iran, like any country, to change over time. it may not be likely. if you does me, what is the likely that we are able to arrive at the end state that i was just describing earlier, i wouldn't say that it's more than 50/50. but we have to try. >> iranian president rouhas rouhasn houani said it helped his country. >> iran's foreign minister was asked if tehran was responsible for some of the unrest in the middle east. iran has been accuse did of stoking the matter, including iraq. here is his answer. >> we have a foreign policy which has a strat eachic period in this region. and we believe that we need. to in fact, contain the spread of sectarian divided in region. we believe sectarianism is dangerous for the entire region. iran is certainly not interested in promoting that. in fact, we have talked to everybody from the very first days of assuming. i visited
, in fact, seven out of ten doctors, ard coulding to a new report out this morning, are boycotting the obama care exchange, because, for instance, for getting a tonsilectomy. $500 to $700 they would normally be able to charge for a tonsilectomy in other parts of the country. in california, $160. one of the doctors, he's the president of the california medical association, he sums it up perfectly. we need recognition we're doing a service to the community, but we can't do it for free. he says, we can't do it at a loss. no other business would do that. >> $160? you can't get a bone and rib-eye and a bottle of beer at the pub for that. that's an outrage. >> and return visits, also, $76. generally in most states across the country. in california, it's about $24. take an listen to the doctor in the state of california. a very loose state, mind you, who's fed up with this. >> we train to take care of patients. that's the bottom line here, but in order to take care of patients you have to be able to keep your doors open, pay your overhead, pay your staff. the reality is $24 doesn't cover the cost o
's clear it's under attack and these beneficiaries are feeling the effects of $300 billion cuts in obama care. and with plan cancellation notices sent to tens of thousands of our country's seniors, some of the most vulnerable citizens are faced with this uncertainty. individuals are losing coverage they are happy with and the doctors with which they are comfortable. and this is a tragedy. it's a tragedy of the law. a bill that was rushed through congress without any serious debate, strictly partisan vote is now directly impacting people's lives and their personal healthcare decisions. >> let me ask would you please explain to the committee the reality for those potentially millions of people, seniors who lose coverage over the next few years, especially when it comes to a reduction in financial security and benefits? >> i think this is a very real possibility and something i'm deeply concerned about as you know. it is one thing to mandate that a medicare advantage plan have benefits and offer that. it's another for it to be in existence so they can take advantage of it. money trumps mand
obama a administration official called a plutonium bomb factory. united states and other countries are relieving sanctions and freeing up anywhere from $7 billion to as much as $20 billion in financial ofets as well as exports petrochemicals, auto industry parts, and other things. it is not clear the sort of concession we got from iran is worth that money yet. this is why you're seeing senators like robert menendez and mark kirk from illinois move potentially as early as next week to try to table sanctions that iflegislation there is no real movement on the program in terms of really constraining it, sanctions may kick in. >> do you think the senate leadership will bring those? the reason menendez and kirk and other members -- particularly those two members -- are negotiating is because they're coming up with an approach amid this geneva plan that is workable and is not completely undercut it that creates the right pressure for iran to really negotiate in good faith toward any final agreement. it is not clear when the start date is. it was introduced in late november. the united st
what they've been doing? once again, if they get a nuclear weapon, every country in the area will have a nuclear weapon. the question also comes, president obama spleen, the steel allows them to enrich uranium to a certain point. it only takes a few minutes to go from that point to nuclearization. if that's where you want to have them wear brand two months away from having a nuclear weapon at all times, if that makes everybody happy, that's pretty scary. >> host: back to the "washington post." they also write this. sunni arab states don't object to deal that could curb iran's nuclear objections, but they worry about the ramifications of ties between tehran and washington said one security expert, the big worry he said at a long-term deal normalizing ties between iran and the united states took him at the expense of sunni influence. what do you think about this? expanded a little bit. they like to make friends with our past foes and kind of ignore our allies. this kind of plays into it. the saudi's will not be the greatest country in the world, women still can't vote in saudi arabia. wo
undocumented in this country and the record-setting aspects of the obama administration, families separated by deportation. my home was raided by i.c.e. on the same day i began my work in congress. the raid stemmed from a traffic stop. while i.c.e. is supposed to deportations for violent crimes they decided to go after my mother, who has never committed a violent crime. families being separated is nothing new. it is nearing the two million deportation mark. i had the opportunity to meet erica earlier today and i can tell you we will miss her service in this body for the member she worked for. she has her legal status thanks to president obama's deferred action program the result of the inaction of this body that the executive had to take action with the limited authority he has to give temporary reprieve to erica but no such help to her mother. who among us would choose between our job and our family wouldn't choose our family. as erica returns home to arizona, i wish her and her mother well and good luck in ensuring they can stay together in a country i hope values families just as it valu

authority to go start bombing a country. we would consider it an act of war. what gives him that authority, i am curious from each of you. >> it is a great question. no one has accused president obama of being inclined to engage in war without a declaration. i was in court with members of this committee saying exactly that. and whatn or conflict disturbed this is the white house came back and said the reason we do not need a declaration of war is because the president alone defines what a war is. he simply is saying this is not a war. and what we talk about the dangers, this is a danger of a different kind. not only a danger separation of powers and dreck violation of the express image of the constitution but this administration, through these acts and the large number of drone attacks is returning the world to a state of nature. we are taking down article international legal principles. that have governed this world, that have respected territorial limitation. i just spoke to the nato commentary and and i told them, you will loathe the day that you endorsed the u.s. position that they cou
